Not all files downloaded

09/21/2009 06:48 am
Let me give an example of a site I tried to download:

Everything seemed to work fine, however after browsing the site offline I noticed that many images were not downloaded (the last few on this page for example Now these images were normal PNG files like most on the site and they were all located in the same directory as the 90% which were downloaded, so my question is why did OE pro miss those files (I tried using it several times and got the same result) and how can I fix it?

On a slightly related question, is there anyway to make or view a log file list of files that could not be downloaded after you have downloaded a site?

You may turn on Logging and setup the details level to see what goes on during the download. Press Ctrl+Q to open the Log window. If you don't find anything about the missing files, let me know a couple examples of image URLs that were not loaded from the specified page.

You may also want to increase the number of retry attempts on the Internet tab of the Ribbon.

It worked this time, I did the retries to 0, hopefully that is what fixed it, I also had another question I will ask here: with downloading blogspot websites, sometimes the url file's can have huge names (over 100 characters) is there a way to set OP pro so it can limit file name size or automatically rename them if they get too big?

No, filenames will always reflect the original URL. They will be only truncated if they do not fit Windows limits (260 symbols for full filename, including drive and path).

However you may later export the files and specify filename length limit.
